Mikey was acting up in the early AM and chewing on wires alot so I would get up and grab him. He wanted something to do, even if it ment driving me insane. We figured he was lonely and super bored.
We got the kitten and now mikey seems more active and less sassy. Although he does get me up at 630am for breakfest which I dont mind so much. He even has the kitten in there pouncing on my bed.
A companion is a great idea for some cats. I look at it like this: would i wanna be the only of my specie living in a house?
I wasnt to into getting another cat unless it was a kitten and it looked like mikey (which riley looks like mikey just mikes a skinny minnie and has some white markings) and I knew i couldnt win my boyfriend over. I always get compliments on how handsome mikey is and i love how he looked, something about the breed and the colors.
anywho good luck with your new sydney and I hope her and riley get along great!
